    Hey Cliff I'm in no way trying to dispute what you just said because I do agree with it a lot. But I was taught by a retired barber as well as what Sal Glesser showed on his 204 Sharpmaker video...

    It always baffled me as to why they restricted that great "Dialex" design model "the ADVENTURA with just a stainless handle being offered. I've always thought that a G-10 handle would have been...

    Brother I too would like to see more variants of the Harpy model. It is one of the great Spyderco Hawkbills I cut my teeth on. But the Harpy really isn't an obscure model by definition even though...

    For pretty much the same reason the Police model returned with a G-10 handle. There are just a lot of Spyderco fans who loved the G-10 Harpy. Everytime I've mentioned the G-10 Harpy I get nothing...
  7. C-50: A Super Classic much overlooked and passed over.

    I must say "timlara" you've really read my mind and have hit the nail on the head talking about the C-50 Centofante. I have always had a very special love for the C-50 and would love to have both...

    No I don't think you're being silly at all>> I actually looked at the Pegasus when I considered what to put on my opening statement. I've also considered the SPYKER, KRIS and SPIN models as well. ...

    One of the worst heartbreaks I've ever endured in my life was about 2 years ago I either lost or got stolen my original G-10 handled, ATS-55 Harpy which had been my constant companion blade since the...

    At this time I don't have any way of putting up any pictures but they are available at TED's List on Spyderwiki. I'm hoping that those who chime in will show us pics of these older models that they...

    I'm definitely going to get a set of the CBN stones for my own 204 Sharpmakers because I love playing with that device and I've been able to really put some great edges on knife blades and some...
  12. Obscure Spyderco Models Deserving Another Chance?

    I've been doing a lot of thinking in reverse here lately. My idea of taking H-1 models into premium mainline Spyders didn't fly so well as I expected but I've been pondering another idea that I do...

    I do highly recommend you get either an SE TASMAN or an SE Harpy soon. I do recommend you get the hang of using one of the mid-sized Hawkbills before you take on something like a Spyderhawk.

    Anytime something is new or you have a new technology the price is always high at first. I don't know what process is used to make "cubic boron Nitride" but I'm sure it's a costly ordeal or we...
